JFYI:
http://www.epiccardgame.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/EpicC...

@WWG: I think there should be two fold:
a.) Every document should carry a version number and the date stamp (ISO)
b.) Passages on the document should be colored with background colors on incremental changes though that you know what to learn knew (in case of changes/new additions).

Thank you very much for this errata!

We plan to have date stamps. We'll also make a note if we have reversed a ruling. I think it's important to acknowledge when we change something.

We don't mandate that people use the "official" tokens. You can use whatever you like (as long as it's not confusing to your opponent).

We can't allow people to use our copyrighted art/card layouts. We're not happy about it either, but it's a reality of US law. I wish I could do something about US law, but my powers as Rules Manager are limited.

In RPG books and so on, I've seen certain pages marked as "Permission granted for personal copies" or some such (mainly for character sheets). While I'm no expert at law, to me, that suggests there is a possibility. You basically retain copyright, but grant a restricted right to the end-user to make personal copies of parts of the work (in this case, this might be a page with tokens).

As far as boardgaming goes, Asmadi games for example, made a free PnP for Mottainai. I don't think they gave up their rights on the game. So there should definitely be a way of doing this such that players get the right to print any number of tokens they want while WWG retains all copyrights.

As I posted on another thread you could rerelease the scrap golem, tokens and a +1/+1 token (and a coin flip card) under Creative Commons-Non-Commercial-No-Derivates. It is actually THAT easy.

I'll buy those tokens off your printer process any time over whacky copy shop self made stuff.
